About half the tracks on the new record are acoustic, recorded mostly live with guitar, dobro, mandocello, acoustic bass, pump organ, some percussion. The electric tracks employ organ, lap steel, electric guitar and bass, and other sounds. The acoustic tracks were recorded live over a couple of warm June days in Toronto with just Don, Joey Wright and Joe Phillips. Later, several of the tracks were embellished with pump organ and drums. The electric songs were recorded in the same space in various stages, depending on their sonic needs.
